Water management is a key environmental issue in controlling of floods and reducing droughts

By taking an interdisciplinary approach, water resources issues and impacts on the built environment are presented in the inventive and strategic setting of considering the constraints of delivering potable water to an ever-demanding society who, at the same time, are increasingly aware of living in an urban landscape where excessive surface water creates a flood threatened environment hence, the need to portray a balance between too little vs

The book is structured into three parts the first part Sections 2, 3 and 4 addresses management issues and solutions to minimise water shortages and provide water security for society whilst the second part of the book Sections 5 and 6 addresses management issues and solutions to control excessive rainfall and minimise flooding impacts

The integration of physical and environmental sciences, combined with social, economic and political sciences, provide a unique resource, useful to policy experts, scientists, engineers and subject enthusiasts

The third part Section 7 contextualises the issues of the earlier sections within international case studies from the developing world.

This book provides analysis of the main issues, offering solutions and describing good practice

This unique approach to the water resources debate presents a multifaceted collection of chapters that address the contemporary concomitant issues of water shortage and urban flooding and proffers solutions specifically for the built environment

Water Resources for the Built Environment management issues and solutions develops an appreciation of the diverse, complex and current themes of the water resources debate across the built environment, urban development and management continuum
